the police arrested the owner of Club Victoria to bring him to court
The owner of the Victoria Club, located on Victoria Island in Lagos, was arrested by police and reportedly put on trial.
Recall that last weekend, State Police Commissioner Hakim Odumosu led a team of officers to raid the club and arrested its visitors. They were arrested for violating COVID19 protocols.
In December, the state government announced a ban on all nightclub activities in the state as part of measures to contain the second wave of the COVID19 pandemic.
According to State Police Command spokesman CSP Muiiva Adejobi, the owner of the Victoria Club will be prosecuted this morning, January 12, at Yaba Magistrates’ Court.
He said the idea is to use the club owner as a scapegoat to restrain other club owners from breaking their obligations.
